Mind-to-mind transmission is possible due to the fact that each thought produces a different electrical signal in the brain
MOSCOW, September 1 (RIA Novosti) – An international team of scientists has successfully sent a message to a colleague located almost 5,000 miles away using the power of mind in what researchers claim is the first nearly direct long-distance telepathic transmission, according to a study published in the PLOS One journal.
Mind-to-mind transmission is possible due to the fact that each thought sets off a chemical reaction that produces a different electrical signal in the brain. The signals can then be picked up by the electroencephalography (EEG) headsets, encoded, transmitted and deciphered.
During the first experiment, which took place on March 28, 2014, the world “hola”, meaning hello in Spanish, was transmitted. The message turned into a binary code was sent from Thiruvananthapuram, the capital of the Kerala state, India, to Strasbourg, France, using noninvasive technologies and transplanted into the receivers brain. It appeared as a sequence of flashes in the corner of the person’s vision.
On April 7, researches repeated the experiment: an emitter from Spain sent the word “ciao”, which means hello or goodbye in Italian, to France. They managed to achieve reliable results reporting an error rate of 15 percent in the second experiment.
Researchers predicted that in the not-so-distant future people will be able to easily interact with computers and each other using mind-to-mind communication adding that it will have “broad social implications that will require new ethical and legislative responses”.
